Bring Me the Horizon: Worst to Best

I know I will get a lot of s**t for this list, but this is my honest opinion about the band.
6Bring Me The Horizon
Amo


Ahh, the new album, the reason why you even bothered to look at this list (let's be real here). Well, if you are a fan of bands that go from playing Deathcore that would scare away all of your friends to playing electro-pop that your mother would enjoy listening to, then you will love Amo. It sounds nothing like the last five albums and some listeners will enjoy that. Some will not, especially BMTH fans who have held onto the band since Suicide Season. If you started following the band since That's the Spirit or even Sempiternal, you are more likely to accept this album for what it is and enjoy it. If you started following this band right after they put out Suicide Season, as I have, you would absolutely agree with me and say that this is not Bring Me the Horizon. Essentially what Bring Me the Horizon has done with Amo is artificially craft a new debut album.

Favorite Tracks:
Wonderful Life
Mantra
I Don't Know What to Say
I Apologise If You Feel Something

5Bring Me The Horizon
Count Your Blessings


The debut album: Pray for Plagues and bad deathcore songs. Does anything else need to be said? It is their heaviest album, but it is also their worst (until Amo came out today). Pray for Plagues is the only song anyone knows off of the album, and that is because it is the only decent song on the album. The rest of the album is almost unlistenable.

Favorite Track:
Pray for Plagues

Rating: 1.7/5
4Bring Me The Horizon
That's the Spirit


Ahh, the album that is arguably the biggest shift in the sound of BMTH since Count Your Blessings to Suicide Season. This album is also the first time that you hear Oli sing more than scream. This is also the Linkin Park "Meteora" ripoff album. However, this album is responsible for fully breaking Bring Me The Horizon out into mainstream rock. Some call it their sell-out album, I am one of those people that call it their sell-out album. It is a complete abandonment of sound before Sempiternal essentially. Sempiternal acts as the new debut album for Bring Me the Horizon with this album and I am not a fan of it.

Favorite Songs:
Drown
Happy Song
Throne (ripoff of Faint)
True Friends
Avalanche
Oh, No

Rating: 2.6/5
3Bring Me The Horizon
Suicide Season


The first drastic departure for Bring Me The Horizon's sound. They went from a generic deathcore band to a slightly less generic and more melodic deathcore/metalcore band. Chelsea Smile is the band's first proper single, and if you can get past the generic lyrics and sound at times, you can enjoy the album.

Favorite Songs:

Diamonds Aren't Forever
The Comedown
Suicide Season
Chelsea Smile
It Was Written In Blood

Rating: 3/5
2Bring Me The Horizon
Sempiternal


The album that almost broke Bring Me the Horizon into mainstream relevancy, but Bring Me the Horizon did not try to be a different band at that point. Refining the sound on There is a Hell..., Sempiternal is the first album that Bring Me the Horizon starts to flirt more with its electronic sound, as the majority of the songs now contain as much electronica elements as rock-driven guitar sounds.

Favorite Songs:
Can You Feel My Heart
Sleepwalking
Shadow Moses
And The Snakes Start to Sing
Antivist
Hospital for Souls

Rating: 3.2/5
1Bring Me The Horizon
There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It...


The follow-up to Suicide Season, There Is a Hell, Believe Me, I Have Seen It, There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret is responsible for bringing Bring Me The Horizon to relevancy in early 2010s metalcore and Hot Topic scene. I also consider it to be their best and most consistent album, slightly more consistent than Sempiternal in sound and aesthetics. It is less boring than Sempiternal at parts.

Favorites:
Don't Go
Crucify Me
It Never Ends
Fuck
Home Sweet Hole
Blessed With a Curse
